Are there actual customers out there who want to buy it? The reality is, in business, if you want to have the best chance of succeeding, rather than coming up with a great idea that nobody has come up with yet and hoping there is a market for; instead find out what people are already buying and create a service/product that fills that existing need.The truth is, in most cases if something isn't being done already; it's not because nobody has thought of it before, but rather people have already tried it and it's failed because there is no market for it.Rather, the URL exists because of recent Chinese history: before the availability of broadband internet, users had to dial 163 to get online.
